This structure indicates the comparison of two things. The second is preferred to the first. 不如 is often preceded by 真, 还, 倒, etc. For example:
E.g.1 他与其说是一位哲学家,不如说是一位艺术家。 [phr] He is more an artist than a philosopher.
E.g.2 与其待在家里,你还不如出去工作。 [phr] Rather than stay at home you might as well go out to work.
